Few skin rejuvenation treatments are more powerful than chemical peels. This treatment has the ability to totally transform the appearance of your skin when it is affected by signs of aging or sun damage. No invasive techniques are needed, and little downtime is involved in many types of peels.
A chemical peel is a medical-grade solution we apply to your skin to break up some part of its outer layers, triggering skin remodeling and a reduction in many common skin problems. Peels come in three basic forms: Light, medium, and deep. Each type of peel is defined by its ingredients, concentration of chemicals, and depth of penetration.
A light peel is a good treatment choice when you are affected by enlarged pores, light lines and wrinkles, or superficial scars. We use a gentle acid to remove some of the very outer skin layer that is composed of dead skin cell buildup. This has a brightening effect on your complexion and can completely reverse the appearance of dull, tired-looking skin.
Medium peels are a bit stronger than light ones and remove dead skin cells along with part of the lower epidermis skin layer. Your body will respond to a medium peel treatment by replacing damaged skin tissue with fresher skin that displays fewer imperfections like light to moderate wrinkles, light scars, and hyperpigmentation.
When it comes to chemical peels, the deep peel is by far the strongest. It is only used in cases of serious skin conditions like deep acne scars, deep lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks.
What to Expect
We begin your peel treatment by thoroughly cleansing your face before applying the chemical solution. After your face is completely clean and free of dirt and debris, we apply the chemical solution that was specifically formulated for you and your individual needs. After your peel has been left on your face for the specified amount of time, we will rinse it off with water. Then we may apply corrective ointments or moisturizers to protect and replenish your skin.
After your peel, be very gentle with your skin and only use skin products that have a proven record of non-irritability for you. You should also avoid any activity that could dehydrate your skin because dry skin is more vulnerable to damage.
